Unveiling of the Copper Ark

June 23 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join our public unveiling of the magnificent century-old Copper Ark that once graced the sanctuary of the former Red Brick Synagogue on Archibald Street. It now joins the famous “Lost Mural” under one roof for the first time ever. All are welcome!

In addition to the opportunity to view the ark, a brief program will include a taped presentation made for us especially for this occasion by Dr. Samuel Gruber, the world’s foremost expert on historic Jewish art and monuments. Much as he did in heralding the preservation of the Lost Mural, Dr. Gruber will explain why the Copper Ark is ‘one-of-a-kind’. In addition, we will discuss Morris Wool, the immigrant tinsmith who created the ark, and talk about the almost year-long process of rescuing the ark. Light refreshments in the spirt of Little Jerusalem, the Jewish neighborhood into which Lithuanian immigrants settled in the late 1800s, will be served, and our vision for the future of The Copper Ark will be revealed.

This event is sponsored by The Copper Ark Project. For more information, please visit our website at www.copperark.org. We look forward to seeing you on June 23!
